Anyone familiar with Chinese art will know that a copyright statement on a traditional style painting is out of place since every Chinese artist learns by copying from earlier masters. Copying is therefore not frowned upon and this painting too is based on an older version. But, since most early Chinese paintings have poetry or some text on them, and lacking anything better, this text was an appropriate length for the available space.
